  • Disrespectful behavior is a growing problem in the workplace. The way that we treat the people that we work with reflects our previous life experience, our personal and our organizational values. Disrespectful behavior may contribute to an atmosphere of mistrust and workplace violence. Our goal is to assist employees in recognizing this problem and to teach skills for dealing with conflict and difficult situations before they escalate. A working environment built on trust and a feeling of security helps everyone do his or her best work. Course Objectives:

    • Familiarize participants with the growing problem of negative workplace behaviors.
    • Promote and emphasize respectful behavior.
    • Understand the personal and organizational benefits of treating others with respect and dignity. Emphasize the availability of EAP as a resource.
